Controversies at the blood-brain and blood-CSF barriers 

There are currently many controversial issues in the blood-brain and blood-CSF barrier field.

This talk will address:

1) How important are tight junction changes in blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption.

2) Is BBB injury a primary cause or a secondary result of brain injury (is it a therapeutic target?).

3) How important is cerebral edema.

4) How important is the BBB in brain fluid production vs. the choroid plexus.

5) Brain (g)lymphatics and immune privilege – new(?) real(?).

Interesting times.
